Oklahoma City Community College established the Fostering Higher Education program to support students formerly in foster care. This program intends to help students achieve academic success and ultimately graduate with a certificate or degree and will consist of three primary components: student success advising for all students formerly in foster care tailored to their unique needs, scholarships to support a number of these students as they work to achieve their educational goals, and targeted student financial support to help address the cost of transportation and appropriate business professional attire upon graduation.
